    The woman was just digging her feet in because she didn't want to admit she was wrong. Simple as that.

    A most interesting debate which reminds me of another.

    For decades a similar ongoing argument concerning the Wood Duck (Aix sponsa) has yet to be resolved.

    The Wood Duck is thought to be a native only of the Eastern States yet a population is found along the Northwest Coastline from Washington to Oregon.

    Are these waterfowl indigenous or are they the result of released transplants?

    Both arguments concerning the Wood Duck seem plausible.As for the VFT being native to the Olympic Penninsula ,well,that is a long stretch.The VFT is so highly specialized and adapted to it's tiny geographical range that it would also be native in the Northwest is beyond belief.Then again,stranger things occur in nature.

    They would have to be transplanted by somebody, I'm sure they are not natrual.

    ANY Venus Fly Traps growing in "the wild" outside of the North/South Carolina native habitat were introduced by humans..
    might have been 100 years ago! so they might appear native simply because they have been around so long, but still introduced..

    absolutely no question about it..

    I have heard of "wild" introduced populations in Vermont and England..and now Washington state!
    cool...maybe we should compile a list of all the places "wild" VFT's now live!

    There is some question about a site in Florida. You can read about it in the second post in this topic.
